Kevin Spacey says he was ‘too handsy’ in the past

The interview, broadcast on the Piers Morgan Uncensored YouTube channel, featured a direct discussion of how Mr Spacey views his past behaviour.

When asked to clarify what he meant by “pushing the boundaries”, the double Oscar winner said: “Being too handsy, touching someone sexually in a way that I didn’t know at the time they didn’t want.”

Pressed on the potential for this being criminal conduct, Mr Spacey said he has “been gentle with people” and he would not use the word “grope” to describe his actions.

“You want to be gentle. You want to see if they’re going to respond positively,” he added.

Mr Morgan asked him: “Would you say all of that was consensual or was it an attempt at seduction, that if it was repelled, by definition becomes I guess non-consensual, that if you’re being handsy, if you’re groping people, and they don’t want to do it …”

To which Mr Spacey replied: “… then they should let you know they don’t want to do it so that you can understand it’s non-consensual and stop.”

Asked if he could understand that a young actor might worry that someone with his influence could damage their career if they rejected his advances, Mr Spacey said: “Yes”.

The actor said that he is ready to “take accountability” for some of his past actions, which he describes as “bad, bad, bad behaviour”.

But he also said that “a whole lot of people” have made false claims against him.
